- 2 pounds red new potatoes, halved if small, quartered if large
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

Set a steamer basket in a large pot. Fill with enough water to come just below basket; bring to a boil. Place potatoes in basket; reduce heat to a simmer. Cover, and cook until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
Transfer potatoes to a medium bowl. Add oil and thyme; season with salt and pepper, and toss.
